The Greek Marxist political sociologist, Nicos Poulantzas (1936-1979) is one of the most influential of post-war European left thinkers. His works were:
Political Power and Social Classes; Fascism and Dictatorship; Classes in Contemporary Capitalism; The Crisis of the Dictatorships, and State, Power, Socialism.
Although he died over thirty years ago, the contributors to this book share the conviction that Poulantzas's political impulses and studies are more topical than ever.
They offer a re-reading of Poulantzas's work and insight. They map controversies, and reflect on different views as to how Poulantzas's work should be continued, or surpassed, focusing on four themes:
The Economy and the State in the Capitalist Mode of Production
Power and Domination
Space and Statehood
Crisis, Transformation and Political Strategies
